Spartacus has a challenge for you on Zwift the weekend of February 13th. Here are the details from Zwift:
Ready to Sweat?
Featuring one of history’s most decorated and exciting professional road & time trial specialists, Olympic gold medalist and multi-time world champion, Fabian Cancellara, this series is one-of-a-kind and not to be missed!
First, we start with two group rides on February 2 and 5 led by Cancellara himself. This is your opportunity to ride alongside the multi-time world champion and warm up your legs. If you’re lucky he might even share a few race tips for race weekend.
Race weekend will take place February 13 and 14 and will consist of individual TT’s on Watopia’s Tick Tock and Bologna’s Time Trial Lap routes. The TT will put riders to the test as they are forced to work for themselves, as opposed to working together.
If you’re new to Zwift—this is a great opportunity to join like-minded cyclists in the community for social rides led by Cancellara throughout the week. Then, tell your legs to get ready for race weekend in Watopia and see how you stack up against the legend himself by chasing down his time. It’s going to be fun and fast!

THE RACE TIMES TO BEAT:
On Saturday 13 Feb, gear up to chase down Cancellara’s time on the Bologna route—17 minutes, 14 seconds. Let’s see what you’ve got!
Sunday 14 Feb, dig deep along the Tick Tock route as you try to beat the preset time of 27 minutes, 3 seconds. Deep breaths, you got this!
The concept remains the same. But the format is a little different this time. Cancellara has already pre-set his times on both courses. Now, we’ll race on Zwift. This is about going as hard as you can for as long as you can, so be prepared to sweat! Track your results on ZwiftPower to see how you stack up.
We’ll see you in Watopia.
IS THIS A RACE?
Yes and no. The two weekday rides led by Cancellara will be socially paced and relaxed. But once the weekend hits (13/14 Feb), it’s every cyclist for themselves!
